Application Notes

Application Notes

Cirque touch technology can be used in a wide variety of products. The following application notes are available to help you get started with your project:

GP-AN-061130

Designing Low-Cost USB Keyboards With Advanced Multi-function Touchpads

This application note provides the electronic designs required to develop a USB keyboard with integrated multi-function touchpads. The implementation allows the touchpad to be configured not only as a “standard mouse” but allows the use of Cirque drivers which provide many advanced touchpad operating features.

GP-AN-070409

Designing a Dual PS/2 Touch Stick/Touchpad Controller

This application note provides the electronic design required to integrate a combination touch stick/touchpad PS/2 controller into products with a single PS/2 port. The implementation allows the touch stick and touchpad to operate independently or simultaneously.

CTU-GP-00_Increasing Moisture Immunity

Increaseing Moisture Immunity

This application note provides provides different solutions that will increase moisture immunity.

GS-AN-070301

Integrating GlideSensor® Capacitive Touch Sensors in Embedded Microcontroller Products using SPI Protocol

This document provides the information necessary to interface a Cirque GlideSensor to an embedded microcontroller. Important features needed to read, write and process data are included. Reference hardware and sample firmware are provided to show how to properly communicate with a Cirque GlideSensor using SPI protocol.

GS-AN-070401

Integrating GlideSensor® Capacitive Touch Sensors in Embedded Microcontroller Products using I2C Protocol

This document provides the information necessary to interface a Cirque GlideSensor to an embedded microcontroller. Important features needed to read, write and process data are included. Sample firmware is provided to demonstrate proper communication with a Cirque GlideSensor using I2C protocol. 

GT-WP-070801

Evaluation of GlideTouch Security Solutions for Touch Panels Integrated into PCI-Approved PIN Entry Devices

This paper provides a summary review prepared by InfoGard Laboratories, Inc. (San Luis Obispo, CA) regarding the benefits and limitations of Cirque GlidePoint technology when integrated into optically clear touch panels for PIN Entry Devices. The ability to meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) security requirements is discussed. 

GP-AN-121030

AG Composite USB Device to the Cirque Driver

This document describes how to interface a composite device to Cirque's driver. Cirque Trackpads with Advanced Gestures can be embedded into a keyboard that shares a singled USB output and take advantage of Cirque's Gesture Suite.
